Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere is supportive energy flowing for you related to business, work, health, and services, dear Aries. If you need to get something done, this is a good time to take action. As the day progresses, you’re more inclined to want to examine feelings or enjoy entertainment. New information about old matters can come to light, particularly about long-term projects or friends, or through networking. A project or idea that you had abandoned or set aside can seem viable again. While this may be true, do watch for a tendency to glamorize the past. For some of you, someone from the past can reappear. Today’s Mercury-Venus conjunction encourages you to see a frustrating problem in a new light. Conversations can be quite lighthearted but watch for a tendency to pay superficial attention to a matter that may deserve a more in-depth approach.
TaurusThis is a potentially strong day for both technique and inspiration, dear Taurus. You’re inclined to want to take action and get things done. Agreements with a partner or significant other can happen quite naturally, even if there have been recent disagreements. It can be a time for enjoying pleasant thoughts or conversations. You’re likely to receive more than the usual amount of attention today, particularly on a professional or public level. Your words have a lot of impact but misunderstandings are also possible. As long as you choose your words carefully, this can be an excellent time to bring peace and harmony to a matter. There may be an opportunity revolving around work or business that re-emerges for a fresh look. Information can surface that prompts you to redefine long-term goals. Complications in your love life are possible, but you may be able to resolve something that was left hanging.
GeminiThere is excellent energy for work behind the scenes and on or in the home today, dear Gemini. You can feel pleasantly dedicated to your domestic world, private life, or loved ones now. Especially as the day advances, smoothing over differences can be in focus. You’re presenting yourself and your ideas with charm or gentleness, and it works well for you as Mercury and Venus come together in harmony with your sign. You seem to know how to turn virtually any situation around in a pleasant way. You can be quite eager to share an idea, ideal, or personal belief. There can be discussions about cooperation in relationships and long-term plans, education, beliefs, expansion, and love of knowledge. Looking at past subjects, relationships, or viewpoints in new ways can be stimulating. You may be making essential clarifications, and possibly coming to new conclusions about past matters that help you find resolutions or closure. Today is strong for connecting, and more likely re-connecting, with a special someone.
CancerYou’re in fine shape for pouring concentrated energies into a learning endeavor or pet cause today, dear Cancer. You might enjoy devoting yourself to something you care about. Conversations tend to lead in good directions, although they’re inclined to focus on past matters. Your powers of negotiation are good with Mercury and Venus in alignment today. However, with Mercury still retrograde, consider that misunderstandings or inconclusive situations are likely. You’re inclined to do a lot of analyzing, thinking, and talking about a personal or intimate matter, and if jealousies emerge, use the experience as a lesson in self-awareness. There is a strong tendency to consider the consequences of recent choices or missed opportunities, and this gives you a new perspective on how to go about things in the future. There can be attractive business projects or plans re-emerging from the past.
LeoYou can be quite creative as well as determined and dedicated now, dear Leo, and it’s a winning combination. Practical activities can be satisfying. A patient approach to the day fares the best right now. You’re attracted to mysteries, and you may very well solve a puzzling problem. You may stumble upon or uncover something missing, lost, or hidden. Especially as the day advances, you tend to want to make sense of feelings and ideas. Reaching agreements, or at least getting to a place of understanding, can be in pleasant focus. Even though resolution seems likely, with Mercury still retrograde, there is probably more to the story. You may see a new side of a person or situation, and someone could see you in a new light.
VirgoYou can concentrate your focus on a worthwhile project if you feel inspired, dear Virgo, which is quite likely today. You can be motivated by what you’re learning or your studies, projects, or interests. You’re gaining perspective today–efforts towards making peace can be in focus and successful. You’re making sense of your feelings and perhaps even an old problem as you see things in a new light. You can resolve many issues through brainstorming and analysis. Someone from your past can be on your brain or perhaps re-appearing in your life now. Further attention is drawn to your work and health, habits, or daily affairs and routines. A sense of turning over a new leaf with any of these things is likely, at least in mind and attitude. Socializing on the job, or making connections through work, can bring opportunities into your life now. You are likely to feel needed today, and you readily lend others support.
LibraIt’s a good day for work done behind the scenes or efforts to handle a tricky emotional problem or situation, dear Libra. As the day advances, you’re more inclined to communicate and enjoy yourself. Energies today draw you to figuring things out and coming to a mutually beneficial agreement. While it may not stick forever, it’s probably just what you need at the moment. You might also get to solve a mystery about a relationship that previously bothered you. Talks and thoughts tend to revolve around past romance, projects, and events, or an overdue conversation happens now as retrograde Mercury aligns with Venus. You want to put something behind you or pull yourself out of a rut, and this applies in particular to romantic, recreational, and creative levels. A lot is happening on a mental plane as you come to a happier perspective on things.
ScorpioThe Moon moves into your sector of play, drama, and entertainment, dear Scorpio, raising your spirits, particularly for enjoyment. You’re in good shape for shared, focused activities, but the day plays more for your relaxation needs later on. You might enjoy discussing personal plans, even if you are not very clear on details. You could find yourself in a favorable position to satisfy your needs for conversation or learning experiences. Mercury aligns with Venus, and since Mercury is still retrograde, you may want to keep things informal and avoid jumping to conclusions–some facts can be missing. Conversations with or about family can be revealing and rewarding. You may be directing a lot of attention to unresolved relationship matters. It’s a time for being fair and nonjudgmental and seeing an issue that once bothered you in a more favorable light. There can be plenty of nostalgia now.
SagittariusThe Moon transits your home and family sector all day, dear Sagittarius, and you crave some familiarity and gentleness. Nevertheless, you can experience a feeling of a stronger commitment to your ambitious goals, career, long-term plans, or work today. You feel more accomplished. As the day advances, you’re more interested in learning something interesting, and you tend to take a step back from hard thinking. Still, you’re ready to analyze things as Mercury aligns with Venus. It can be about discovering some missing puzzle pieces to a situation. Even though the complete picture is yet to come, it can still be satisfying! Look for opportunities to expand your knowledge and skills set, as an opportunity that was missed or passed over in the past can re-emerge, and it may be worth a closer look. Thoughts and conversations tend to revolve around sorting out past problems, particularly old relationship challenges. You’re more easily distracted by social elements.
CapricornYou have excellent support for focusing on pet projects, studies, or creative pursuits today, dear Capricorn. As the day advances, the social element factors in more strongly. Further information about a long-standing issue may emerge and alter your perspective, particularly related to your finances or practical affairs. There could be a project or financial opportunity that you previously set aside that now looks promising. You more readily recognize and discuss your needs and desires at this time. You want to bring more harmony and comfort to your life, and you can find yourself in the perfect frame of mind for hashing things out. Backtracking in thought and conversation can figure strongly with Venus and retrograde Mercury heading into alignment. You’re most inclined to go over matters from the past surrounding love relationships and money. Opportunities can emerge to increase your income through reaching out to others, accepting help or support, or a willingness to look to the past for answers that used to work for you.
AquariusThe first part of the day favors pouring energy into pet projects or dedication to family or domestic matters, dear Aquarius. Pleasing conversations can be part of the day later on, and you’re particularly communicative. A Mercury-Venus alignment in your sign can put you in an excellent position to strike up an agreement or get into a good frame of mind. You have more impact than usual, whether it’s what you communicate or how you interact. Energies feel rather easygoing, but it’s a good idea to be more mindful of what you say, as it may not come out as you intend with Mercury still retrograde. There can be more attention and focus on you than usual, and you might be the subject of conversation. Today can be a time for attracting people from your past.
PiscesThe Moon moves into your sign today, dear Pisces, pulling up emotions that were in hiding. You’re sensitive and responsive. Still, the first part of the day is strong for getting things done, particularly if they require decisiveness and focus. As the day advances, it’s easy to smooth over differences with others, if needed. While the morning can seem to demand a definite plan, you are more inclined to allow social elements to distract you as the day advances. Further information about a private or past topic may surface and give you a refreshing new perspective. You may not know the whole story just yet, but it feels good to fill in a few blanks. There is good energy for making sense of the past, feelings, and ideas today. You are more inclined than usual to talk about private matters or to think about these things objectively. You may want to watch that you don’t reawaken a topic that truly does belong in the past, but the vibes today are mostly positive.
